good morning, some nice direct action in my apartment stairwell

Good morning. I thought today would finally be the day that I quit Brooklyn-based politics irony podcasts. Alas,

good morning, here’s my new guitar

how do I know it’s mine?

Good morning, can anyone confirm that shrink-wrapped bread is unique to America? Why do this? [cw food]

good morning, I found this guide to using `tar` very helpful [cw screaming Arnold Schwarzenegger face]

good morning to the profound absurdity and existential horror I found on my way out the door of my apartment building this morning [cw ec]

no one should ever look that relaxed – it's computer-generated happiness and I reject it.

good morning, the horror van is parked outside again [cw ec]

good morning, let's check in on how the normies are doing... [cw pol]

@ashfurrow Well, you can find shrink-wrapped bread in the few places in Europe where they sell pre-sliced bread. And it's usually pretty bad bread.

@deshipu @ashfurrow we totally have it in czechia and can confirm the bread is never very good. they pack it with chemicals to last longer I guess

luckily they still stock normal bread because most locals don't buy this junk
@deshipu @ashfurrow you take that back!! cumin is a must in a real bread

@piggo @ashfurrow right, kumin and horseradish leaves — perfect with jam

@deshipu @ashfurrow you put horseradish in bread??!
honestly I didn't know you can EAT the leaves at all

@piggo @ashfurrow No, you don't eat the, you use them instead of baking paper at the bottom, to avoid the dough sticking in the really good breads. I guess some of the spiciness and smell transfers into it.

@deshipu interesting! It's fairly common here, even among nice breads!

@ashfurrow double-wrapping helps protect against potential punctures in the outer bag letting air in and spoiling the bread. Also, the inner wrap is slightly more structurally hard which aids in squish-protection. That’s my guess.

@Archimage makes sense! I never saw it in Canada or The Netherlands.

@ashfurrow It's to introduce another step between you and toast.

@ashfurrow I have never seen bread come any other way and I also have no fuckin clue why it's done

Maybe it's because people like food to be SUPER DUPER SEALED here

Not totally sure tho

@ashfurrow fear of bugs? *we are weevils and we are here for the grain product*

@ashfurrow It keeps all those delicious alpha and beta particles in the loaf until you unwrap it. ☢️

I've always wondered this myself. And it's always the good stuff. Maybe it's cause we're all fat and they're trying to slow is down by wrapping it twice. :P

@Montesboogie apparently it exists in other countries, but usually on not-fresh breads.

Also, thank you for here's some monkey love for ya' 🙊❤️

A restful, happy face. A face of contentment knowing you did a good job. A good job murdering that family. Off to sleepy time, sleepy head.

Now I want to rent that truck and park it in front of my enemy's houses in the morning

Farscape also had the highest Muppet quotient of any on air sf show. Clearly the choice of the connoisseur.

@protean @ashfurrow I believe you're forgetting Pigs in Space, the only segment of The Muppet Show worth watching.

@ashfurrow Bulk bread is sold like this in Canada. Preserves humidity?
